    Why not do it? It's your guitar, make it work the way you want it to. It's just a tool, so maximize its potential I say. Don't be concerned about the resale to a theoretical future buyer when you...

    Thinking back, I wanted to play the Saxophone in Elementary School after hearing my first recital. I think it had to be around 4th grade, so I would have been about, what, 8? 9? Either way, it...

    Welcome! The SE245 is a great guitar and a perfect platform for upgrades. I have had one for about a year that I have done a few mods/updrades to (which I foolishly almost sold a few weeks ago and...

    That looks great! I got the same one from Philadelphia Luthier for my SE245 (well, not the SAME one, its my sig) and it really transformed the look of the guitar. I will have to post a pic of it...

    I've never heard one sound good live. Seems as though every time I go to a gig and the guitar player has terrible tone, sure enough there is a Line6 sitting behind him. And the couple of times that...

    Def interested in trying this out also. From the vid it sounds VERY similar to the Rivera amps I have been playing for the last 13-14 years on the dirty channel but has something else going on with...

    Looked at mine and it seems like yours - and that is after a nut change! I don't think it is anything to worry about either, never even noticed it before.

    Now that you guys make me think of it...

    I think Duffy's advice above about covers it. Even though your pics are at relatively close range I am having trouble tracking the wiring to find any possible problems. Given that the solder joints...

    A couple of months ago I picked up a Gibson SGJ, a sub-$500 guitar, because I'd been jonesing for an SG for a while and didn't want to drop the scratch for a "higher-end" one. Well, that thing has...

    It's not really specific about the material. I will say though that after a year of playing it there is no discernible wear on the frets of my Mira whatsoever. I have other guitars that I bought...

    Mostly my SG. It's a lowly SGJ that I have done a bunch of mods to to make it "mine" and it oozes vibe.

    I kept it for a while, yeah, but I eventually decided to get rid of it because I had a hard time playing it at that point and needed something I could use live. I greatly regret that decision now,...

    Had it done on a Les Paul Custom once. It was done by the best-regarded guy in town at the time, but basically ruined the guitar. The edges of the 'board where the fret tangs pulled out got pulled...

    Yeah, that's true. The guitar I have my eye on is a really reasonably priced CE24 at a local dealer. A buddy talked me into giving it a few weeks before I sell the 245 since I have put a lot of...

    Yeah, change em whenever you want. I change mine more frequently than most people seem to - about every two weeks. I guess I am doing something weird to them or I am just super-sensitivo, but past...

    "Lay It Down" by Ratt.

    And I hear ya on the hobbyist/home player part of it. That's me these days - haven't stepped on a stage since somewhere around 1997 - but I don't feel like every hack...

    I find the videos fascinating in that he seems to always try to outdo himself in the horrible guitar tone department. He's like evil anti-tone that can make even the nicest gear sound awful.

    And...

    Never tried Craigslist, but I do like the idea of selling locally if possible. Perhaps I will start there - gonna figure out what to ask for it. It's got PRS USA pickups and other US parts...

    Best Place to Sell?

    Guys, it's been a while since I sold a guitar but I have decided to let my SE-245 go because I just can't seem to bond with it the way I should (Although I LOVE the way it sounds).

    I've actually stopped wearing a watch for the most part after decades of always having one on. Ironically, it was my Omega Seamaster that broke the proverbial camel's back - heavy, bulky, not as...

    Killer. One of my favorite bands.

    Those don't looks like his signature Lace Hammerclaw pickups in the Starla. Wonder what they are?
